Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is nothing new. Merkel talked about this already in May.

Deutsche Welle: Germany | 29.05.2006 - Opinion: Re-opening a Constitutional Can of Worms

It's an ambitious goal, and may yet land Berlin in hot water. German Chancellor Angela Merkel's demand that the constitution include a reference to God and Christian belief will complicate her foreign minister's job even further. This dimension to the debate had in fact been considered down and dusted, given that France made it clear it would never agree. By bringing the matter up again, Merkel is opening a whole new can of worms.

I think I may have linked to this before, though I have not mastered the ET search yet. :-( Some of these days I am going to figure it out.
